Does your cloud integration vendor think enterprise-grade integration is drudgery or donkey work? We don’t.
Integration is a complex and a critical element of your "digital DNA" — and an essential part of your digital transformation. It is more than connecting applications and databases. Integration encompasses the traditional and the new, sophisticated architectures, a wide range of APIs and endpoints, plus new development lifecycles and deployment options.
To contend with the increasing complexity and sophistication of cloud integration requirements you need a solution that runs like a stallion – not a mule.
This E-book, "Bet On A Stallion, Not A Mule: 6 Reasons Why Enterprise-grade Integration is NOT Donkey Work," details why Software AG’s webMethods Hybrid Integration is the best bet for sophisticated integration.Read e-book
6 REASONS TO BET ON A STALLION:
1. INTEGRATION HAS TO BE HYBRID
With so many of your critical applications and systems staying on-premise indefinitely, you need hybrid integration to connect on-premise, mainframe and other legacy systems with your new technologies and apps.
Some pure cloud vendors put their focus primarily on cloud apps. But enterprise-grade integration requires a broad, strategic approach to blend together all the necessary operations and processes so you can emerge as a true digital business.Download Forrester Wave
2. INTEGRATION NEEDS TOOLS FOR IT AND BUSINESS
Since they have evolved from serving Line of Business functions or individual departments, many pure cloud vendors come up short. They lack the hands-on expertise that comes from solving enterprise-wide problems and have never built a platform for both IT and the business.Learn more
3. INTEGRATION NEEDS COMPLETE API MANAGEMENT
Your APIs are valuable business assets that you want to securely expose and monetize. Why trust them to a platform that lacks complete API management capabilities?
More than just consuming APIs published by cloud app providers, complete API management gives your business tighter control over the complete API lifecycle?Download Gartner Magic Quadrant for Full Life Cycle API Management
4. HYBRID INTEGRATION DELIVERS CRITICAL B2B SUPPORT
As you build and extend your digital ecosystems, the importance of B2B integration becomes even more apparent. While hybrid integration platforms support B2B integration use cases, most pure cloud integration platforms don’t.
Of the vendors who support B2B use cases, they offer only bare bones support that is completely inadequate for enterprise-grade B2BDownload Forrester Wave
5. INTEGRATION IS MORE THAN JUST CONNECTING CLOUD APPS
Integration needs the ability to connect all your critical business assets – from the cloud to legacy systems and every operational process in between. Hybrid integration platforms do much more than just connect apps. They serve as a high-performance platform and the foundation of your future IT applications.
Hybrid integration platforms also deliver a wealth of innovative capabilities like streaming and predictive analytics, robotic process automation, machine learning and artificial intelligence that will accelerate your path to digital and provide multi-dimensional value to your business.Download Forrester Wave
6. HYBRID INTEGRATION POWERS IoT AND DIGITAL
Every organization on the planet is looking to innovate faster and transform quickly. The IoT is the enabler for digital transformation that has everyone’s attention. But some pure cloud integration vendors lack IoT device integration and digital capabilities that can make a meaningful impact on your business strategy — limiting you to a dependency on point solutions. That should be a deal breaker.Learn more
